The jobs, skills and in­dus­tries that are in de­mand now

IF you are look­ing for a job and have skills in project man­age­ment, agribusi­ness, ad­min­is­tra­tion, aged and/or dis­abil­ity care, or con­struc­tion, you might just be in luck.

Ac­cord­ing to ex­ec­u­tive re­cruiter, Melinda Bar­ton from Spinifex Re­cruit­ing, th­ese are just some of the in­dus­tries in the Dubbo re­gion look­ing for work­ers.

“Re­tail is also a sig­nif­i­cant em­ployer in our re­gion, as is ed­u­ca­tion and

childcare,” she told Dubbo Photo News.

“The min­ing sec­tor is al­ways look­ing for peo­ple too, but fur­ther west, not all that close to Dubbo. There are also mines re­cruit­ing in Parkes, Orange and West Wya­long.

“Across the re­gion, there have been a num­ber of so­lar farm projects ap­proved for con­struc­tion, which again means more jobs.”

Ms Bar­ton said she has mostly seen skilled or pro­fes­sional work be­ing ad­ver­tised at present, likely be­cause of the sev­eral in­fra­struc­ture and com­mer­cial projects planned for the re­gion in­clud­ing the train main­te­nance fa­cil­ity and lo­cal mine ex­pan­sions.

The ex­pe­ri­enced re­cruiter also be­lieves the on­go­ing dry spell has cre­ated ad­di­tional roles in the area.

“There are gov­ern­ment agen­cies and com­mu­nity ser­vice or­gan­i­sa­tions de­liv­er­ing pro­grams as­so­ci­ated with sup­port­ing re­gional com­mu­ni­ties through­out this un­prece­dented drought,” Ms Bar­ton said.
